Our stay at The Carriage House was mid May 2012. The house is beautifully appointed with lots of little sitting nooks where you could read or lounge comfortably. The decorations are from all over the world. The breakfast, although continental, was plenty. There was fruit, rolls, croissants, bagels, muffins, string cheese, cereals, yogurts. One thing we found uncomfortable was that the air conditioning could not be controlled by the individual room. We found the room very warm, perhaps a fan would have helped. If you are looking for a host and hostess to chat you up, you will not find it. They are employed elsewhere and this home is a revenue source for them, not a passion. That being said if you are content to be on your own with a beautiful place to hang your hat for a few days, this would suit you very well.
